I met Dennis in 2014 as a UEFA Delegate and UEFA Stadium Inspector and we have worked together on numerous occasions since then. I admired Dennis’s always friendly, happy and open approach to work and life.
I will always remember Dennis for his happiness and the hearty laughter we had every year at the annual reunions.
I send my deepest condolences to his wife, children, relatives and friends!
I will miss you Dennis!
